Audit before installing packages

Is there any way to find out the audit for a package without installing it? It seems strange to me that I have to download (and by that, already executing possibly harmful scripts) before I can check if the packages is actually “trusted” (meaning: no audit results).

I imagine there should be some method to check the audit for a package before installing it, to make sure I don’t install a malicious package, but I can’t find any?
